It's past midnight and people are in the courtyard yelling like it's midday. No one to answer the phones late unless you feel like filing a complaint with police. It is that bad I am tempted to! I feel awful for anyone putting up with...More

By far the most overall comfortable experience I've ever had in a hostel. There is plenty of shelving and fridge room for storing your food. All of the lounges are comfortable, and if you want to get away from the bustle of the common/ reception...More

About
Description
An 1888 heritage listed building with renovated bathrooms and fantastic staff makes this international backpacker hostel a wonderful place to stay. Situated in the 'arts district', the Queen Victoria Museum & More Art Gallery is only a stroll away, yet the city centre is only a short 7 minute walk. Less

I don't think so. I remember walking for ages on the deserted streets to get to the hostel from the city centre.
